So I have discussed this issue several times before but as new victims are routinely being ensnared in my web of half-truths, exaggerations, conspiracy theories, and propaganda I figured I would take a few minutes to review something everyone should know about. After all, as compelling a writer as I may be, I can’t expect everyone to indulge in reading what by now must be some 250 pages of heresy on my part in rebuking the zeitgeist of COVID.
You see, a long, long time ago, way back in late 2019, in a place far, far away called Earth, there was something called the World Health Organization, commonly referred to as the WHO. This august body of medical experts and saintly bureaucrats was recognized far and wide as THE authority on planet Earth (and amazingly still is to this very day by some useful idiots) on all things relating to the health and well-being of the minions who roamed the planet like ants on a melting ice pop in July. In fact, it was October of 2019 when the WHO published its updated guidelines for how humans should deal with a respiratory viral pandemic should one occur. It was entitled “Non-pharmaceutical public health measures for mitigating the risk and impact of epidemic and pandemic influenza” and it was seen as the Holy Grail of healthcare directives. This was recognized as the absolute BEST, GOLD STANDARD healthcare information in the entire world. And as such, and as the sage wisdom contained therein was some 10 years in the curating from the BEST information that human beings had collected over the previous 50 years or so, this updated advice would no doubt be implemented to save the world should such a need arise.
As fate would have it, just three months or so after this biblical tome was issued (actually, there is evidence that this “novel” coronavirus was already in circulation about when these guidelines were published in October) the world would need these recommendations like never before as the very survival of the species was challenged by a respiratory virus. To the Batpoles!! So as the world descended rapidly into madness, those of us who were not yet hiding under our beds reached out with hopeful hands to glean what was, one more time, the BEST information on the planet in how to combat the evil ‘rona, and this is what we found (caps mine for emphasis):
AS TO HAND WASHING: “Although RCTs HAVE NOT FOUND HAND HYGIENE IS EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING TRANSMISSION of laboratory-confirmed influenza specifically, mechanistic studies have shown that hand hygiene can remove influenza virus from the hands…” In case you don't know, "RCTs" are "randomized controlled trials" and are recognized as the gold standard of scientific research. So if they don't find effectiveness, there ain't no effectiveness. But remember how we were all stepping over Grandma to get that last bottle of hand sanitizer and many of us washed our hands raw…because we “knew” this was the way to salvation? Sweet.
AS TO RESPIRATORY ETIQUETTE (coughing into your sleeve, using tissues and then IMMEDIATELY throwing them away, etc): "Although there is NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING INFLUENZA TRANSMISSION, there is mechanistic plausibility for the potential effectiveness of this measure…” If you’ve been paying attention, Joe Biden was recently caught coughing into his right hand, then shaking hands (almost certainly dooming each of those poor slobs to death), with a bunch of “supporters”. Now if you or I did that, we would be tackled to the ground like a sleep monster with a kid’s sock on its back and banished to the cornfield. But, “rules for thee and not for me” and all that sort of thing. Cool.
AS TO FACE MASKS FOR ASYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE: “Although there is NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING TRANSMISSION, there is mechanistic plausibility for the potential effectiveness of this measure.”
AS TO FACE MASKS FOR SYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE: “Although there is NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING TRANSMISSION, there is mechanistic plausibility for the potential effectiveness of this measure.” So for those who worship at the altar of Fauci, THIS is why in both May of 2019 and March of 2020 he literally laughed off the idea of wearing masks to “protect” yourself. He KNEW that all the science on the planet said masks were ineffective. Why he flip-flopped in April 2020 has been discussed extensively, but essentially, for whatever reason, he started lying. If ANYONE can show me what “evolved science” Fauci followed between March and April of 2020 I’d love to see it. But it doesn’t exist so don’t waste too much time looking.
AS TO SURFACE AND OBJECT CLEANING: “Although there is NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING TRANSMISSION, there is mechanistic plausibility for the potential effectiveness of this measure.” Hey, remember how we were all stepping over Grandma to get that last can of Lysol? Remember washing your groceries and sanitizing your mail? Remember not letting your neighbor pet your dog? Because we all “KNEW” we could die from reading US Weekly. Turns out not so much. Turns out “fomite transmission” (picking up the virus from touching something) doesn’t happen. Who knew? Well, the WHO knew and they said so.
Interestingly, for hand hygiene and mask usage, the “Quality of Evidence” is listed as “Moderate” even though it says right after the word “Moderate” “(lack of effectiveness in reducing influenza transmission)” I’m not quite sure how that’s “Moderate” but you do you. For surface and object cleaning the “Quality of Evidence is “Low” but again followed by the same qualifier “(lack of effectiveness in reducing influenza transmission)” so somebody is gonna have to explain that one. And for respiratory etiquette the “Quality of Evidence is simply “None” so there’s that.
AS TO CONTACT TRACING: “Active contact tracing is NOT RECOMMENDED in general because there is NO OBVIOUS RATIONALE for it…” with the Quality of Evidence being “Very low”. Remember the good old days when “rationale” was a real thing?
AS TO ISOLATING THE SICK: “VOLUNTARY isolation at home of sick individuals with uncomplicated illness is recommended during all influenza epidemics and pandemics…” although again the Quality of Evidence is “Very low”. And "VOLUNTARY" is not the same thing as "at the point of a gun".
AS TO QUARANTINING THE EXPOSED: “Home quarantine of exposed individuals to reduce transmission is NOT RECOMMENDED because there is NO OBVIOUS RATIONALE for this measure…” and again the Quality of Evidence is “Very low”. Remember when your neighbors were encouraged to rat you out if you were in your own yard? In some fun places, even today you'll be arrested and whisked off to some kind of re-education camp if you dare to leave your domicile.
And if you’re looking for some guidance on lockdowns, well it doesn’t exist because nobody before January of 2020 thought people would be gullible or stupid or cowardly enough to fall for it. But, surprise!
And for those of you screaming about this “mechanistic plausibility” nonsense, even Fauci admitted in Congressional testimony that mechanistic evidence more or less isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. Kind of like when you put a mask on a dummy (or a mannequin) and blow air through it’s mouth hole and see less particulate come through the mask and claim that as “proof” that masks work. Except out in the real world, they don’t, and everyone already knew that.
So there you have it. EVERYTHING we have been told we MUST do to save mankind has been in direct contradiction to the, say it with me, BEST SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE ON THE PLANET. We dutifully did it all, often through threat of arrest or jail time; and so many of us "KNEW" it's what we HAD TO DO to beat this thing, and none of it made more than a lick of difference. But we did largely destroy our entire society so that's cool. Even the CDC published articles in both May of 2020 and March of 2021 saying masks do next to nothing and there have been literally dozens of papers written showing lockdowns did nothing to save lives but cost incalculable damage. And yet we did them and amazingly continue to do them to this very day. That’s what we call SCIENCE these days. Heaven help us.
If you believed the “experts” then, or worse yet still do today, because they “warned” you what “could, might, would, should, may” happen, even in the face of the actual SCIENCE AND DATA showing us what actually DID happen over these last 20 months; if after 20 months of predictions and models which have been proven wrong pretty much every single time, you are still living in fear, please stop it already. Living in fear of dying is no way to live. The idiots and liars who are trying to run our lives have no idea what they’re doing and they do not have our best interests at heart.
Stop worshipping at the altar of science or medicine or Fauci. Get healthy, get strong, and take control of your own health destiny.
